We Rise Together

Most of the time I feel as though I am not really completely here in this world. There are several reasons for this. One is due to the fact that no matter what I do I am never grounded. Once when a healer was attempting to ground me I felt as though I was being shocked over and over. He later told me he was given the information never to ground me but only to connect me to Venus. That should be a good enough reason to feel as though you don’t belong here and feel as though you are not completely here but there is another reason that intensifies this feeling even more.

I seem to have a foot in several worlds. One is beyond everything here and allows me to have all kinds of otherworldly experiences. The other is an illness that has been ever present for more years than I would like to remember. These are two very intense experiences going on at the same time.

The illness was the catalyst that forced me to leave my entire life behind and propel me into the world of healing. I learned many things in this new world. First I had to learn if I had the courage to make this journey. I was frightened and lost. I had no compass. I found that sometimes I had great courage and sometimes I had none. I continue this journey to this day and pass in and out of some very dark passages and also into places more beautiful than I ever could have imagined.

I have been given divine glimpses into the purpose of the physical illness and have been told the same exact thing by several mystics who I love and admire most in this world. I have been shown and told things that have been very challenging to understand and more challenging to live. I understand that nothing is what it seems.

Over these past months the challenges have been almost too much to bear. I write this today for those who are also feeling this way. The circumstances do not matter. Whatever we are going through in our own physical lives in many cases is being magnified as the world around us squeezes through the eye of the needle. We are being purged and sanctified.

It is a lonely journey. It is not for the faint of heart. Glimpses of heaven are beautiful and miraculous and still we must make it here through each day. Our faith is being tested as we bear witness to one heartbreaking event after the other. Where is it all heading? Some are so sure of the who what where and why. I am not so sure of anything except I must use everything I have to keep on keeping on.

The mysteries I have been shown about physical suffering go way beyond anything I could have ever imagined. When I lose my way I am reminded in ways that are impossible to ignore. I am living the mystery.

Here on earth I am a partner in life to the boy I made a vow to when I was nineteen. He is the embodiment of unconditional love. I am a mother and a grandmother. I am a mystic and a recluse. I suffer greatly in the physical in ways I never could have imagined and soar to the heavens in ways I never could have dreamed. Sometimes it feels like a blessing and a curse. When the mind tries to take me over I come back to what I know to be true. These are the days when the darkness upon this planet is doing all it can to take us down. These are the days we were made for.

Each time I find a way to rise again and again I think of all of you. I think of all we are all going through and remind myself that as lonely as this all feels we are not alone. There are legions of angels and loving beings here with us in every moment. We are going to make it. We rise together.

The Power of Love

 

When one wound heals through the power of love Heaven rejoices.

Healing energies rise up to Heaven

and love and grace and forgiveness reign down upon the land.

That Most Sorrowful Day

10675529_1687178948041075_1072596273212968404_n
The women were there every step of the way
we agonized, we cried out, we fell to our knees
the men were gone
fear had overtaken them

I can only speak for myself when I say
I had no fear
not for me
the unbearable witnessing
of such things done to him
you could only be with him
of him

each step was mine
each time he stumbled

the weight of the cross
the taunts
it was a mob scene

I saw nothing but him
I felt I would not live through it
such was the overwhelming feeling
of being one with him

and even in this
I know it was a comfort to him
for he could feel my agony
and he could feel my infinite love

so I walked this way of the cross
and I tell you in complete truth
I hung with him on that cross
and on that day I was aware
of somehow relieving him
in ever the smallest way

for I absorbed his sorrow and I felt his pain
and with all my heart and soul sent him
the radiant burning love
that was transforming within my heart

and this he felt
and this he understood

it is impossible to make known the bitter gall
of that most sorrowful day

for there are no words to describe
the depth of his physical suffering

and the agony and beauty of being witness
to his magnificent forgiving heart

only the glory of his Resurrection
could ever ease the pain
for it would take something so miraculous and divine
to fill your heart with light and love once again

it was an honor and a blessing
to stand with the women
the ones who saw nothing
but the truth of heaven before their eyes

and we lifted him with our prayers
and we sustained him with our love
and it was our faces he did see
in these most brutal and terrible moments

and the power of unspeakable acts
and the glorious message of forgiveness
burned in our hearts all the days of our lives

may this message come alive in your hearts
and may his life be testimony
of heaven and of earth

from The Heart of Love: Mary Magdalene Speaks

What If

 

What if you absolutely knew that your suffering was a divine transmutation process?

What if you knew that your overcoming saved someone’s life?

What if you are the most powerful being transmuting the most important and significant energies for the planet and beyond?

What if nothing is what it seems and the angels are constantly rejoicing at your courage, fortitude and faith?

What if just the knowing and believing magnified the power to change anything?

What if the less you thought and the more you felt brought you more into alignment with your true spiritual nature?

What if you absolutely knew that this is the time and what you do from this moment on has a greater effect than ever before?

What if only some of us remembering will tip the scales in favor of Heaven?

And what if love really does conquer all?

A Summer Solstice Story – Part Two – Heaven Sent

To catch up on this ongoing story please see A Summer Solstice Story https://gailheartoflove.wordpress.com/2017/06/23/a-summer-solstice-story/

This is how the day started today.

After what happened at the Summer Solstice Ceremony with the circle of birds over me this picture was the first thing I saw this morning and really this is what it felt like.

22c8f581ff383cb1ac2edb75cd2e839b.jpg

I always say when someone you love passes all the other deaths come marching forward and all the grief you have ever felt merges with the newest loss. That is the way it always is for me anyway. I don’t know how I could get through any of this without the magic.

I just found a picture I have never seen in my life. I burst into tears at the sight of it. My memory is not great so I showed it to my husband who remembers everything. He said “I have never seen this picture before.” Now I cried even harder.

There he is, our Billy, the one who lost his life in Viet Nam. There he is smiling at me in a picture we have no idea where it came from. And in no uncertain terms, all these years later, he is telling me for the second time, from beyond the veil “I was there to greet her.”

I knew this and even though I knew this and had seen it and the etching from the Viet Nam wall confirmed it – Billy’s picture arrived today straight from Heaven.

As I am writing this my husband comes in and looks out the window and tells me to look and there is the most beautiful red tailed hawk sitting on our fence. This is the first time we have seen a hawk sitting on our fence and she/he comes right in the middle of this story.

1D2E541F-9E3B-4ADB-91D9-BB8D99345624 2.jpgHawk is the messenger of the spirit world

Hawk spirit animals belong to the realm of bird medicine. It carries the symbolism that comes with the ability to fly and reach the skies.”
 Hawks are the protectors and visionaries of the Air. They hold the key to higher levels of consciousness. This power animal enables us to awaken vision and inspires a creative life purpose. Having Hawk as power animal means your life will be filled with responsibility, because Hawk people seek the overall view. You will most probably be aware of omens and spirit messages.

A Red tailed Hawk is special. It will ALWAYS be with you, for life. It has direct ties to the Kundalini, the seat of primal life force. It is linked to the base chakra. If you have this power animal, you need to be aware of and work toward fulfilling your soul’s destiny. It reflects far greater intensity of energy within your life: physically, emotionally and mentally. Spiritual forces will be felt strong within you.

One trait all hawks share, is the ability to move between the seen and unseen realms gracefully, joining both worlds together. Their acute vision attributes this ability, their discriminating nature keeps them out of dangers path. Hawks have a broad vision, allowing them to see what the future holds. In man this is a symbol of prophetic insight.

“In ancient Egypt, the hawk was considered a royal bird and a symbol of the soul (ba). Isis is said to have shape shifted into a Hawk to save Osiris. Horus also carried Hawk medicine which allowed him to see the “unseeable”.

And so as I have spent this day remembering all the happy days we spent together, my tears of grief and gratitude flow, for the birds and Heaven, for Billy and Kathy and Sally and Emma, all my darling childhood friends who are no longer here.  They speak to me in magical ways from wherever they are. I know that Kathy now rests in the arms of the angels. She is reunited with all her beloveds and one day soon I will hear from her too.

I love you all so.

A Summer Solstice Story

IMG_0015.JPG

I was asked to read a prayer at our annual Summer Solstice Ceremony on the beach. I have many beautiful prayers written over the years and I am always open to receive a new one if it is meant for a certain time. I have learned that I will be guided to what is to be spoken even down to the last minute. This is what happened for the Solstice. I was guided to read, not a prayer, but a message from Magdalene and right before I left for the ceremony I was guided to a message from Joan of Arc. I realize now these messages are truly divine prayers.

The morning of the ceremony I received a phone call from my childhood friend’s sister asking me if I received something she had sent me and telling me her sister was now in hospice. She told me that her sister had been going through her things and came across something she wanted me to have. I never received it. It was an etching of the name of our friend from the Viet Nam memorial wall and I assume a note to tell me that the end was near.

I made my way to the ceremony feeling upset and unsettled. I prayed and prayed for my friend and her family all through the ceremony. A strong feeling came over me that she would leave today on the glory of the Summer Solstice. I still felt terribly unsettled. Now my name was called and it was time for me to stand and speak the words that were so divinely given. I stood in the Solstice circle. As I spoke these words they vibrated into every cell of my being. I began to feel two things together – peace and strength. I felt the truth and the power in every word. I felt stronger and stronger. I felt them – Magdalene and Joan of Arc and everyone else did too.

I spoke the final word and I heard “Gail look up.”! I looked up and there above me was an enormous circle of birds swirling and swirling. I had never seen anything like it and I felt the power and the love the birds were sending go right through me.

I knew she was home in the arms of the angels.

When I got home my husband told me she passed.

I realized later that I had seen her mother and father and our friend Billy and another friend come for her. The etching she was sending to me was Billy’s.

Godspeed Kathy.

Heaven rejoices at your homecoming.

Your brave and loving mission here is done.

Don’t Give Up

10374943_10203955420198055_8778686119243761115_n.jpg

It has been my joy and my mission to share my connection and my experiences with the realms that lie beyond this world. I am blessed and deeply grateful for it all. It has been wondrous but it has also been what feels like the complete opposite.

This I believe is the whole point, to balance these extremes. The trials and the initiations can make you feel like you will not survive them. The love that you feel showering upon you and the messages and synchronicities you receive are beyond what you could ever imagine.

You live in a world that for the most part makes you feel you don’t belong here and you feel this every moment of the day. When you are in nature you feel you are nature. You breathe with the trees, merge with the mountains and dissolve into the sea. This is your true home on earth.

You know there is a higher purpose to everything and you look at everything on every possible level. Your physical body is like an acupuncture point on the planet and you are constantly transmuting enormous energies through your physical body.

You are struck by revelations that make you fall to your knees, both wondrous and horrifying, and you must go through the arduous process of assimilating it all into your physical body and your consciousness.

You know you came here to do this.

You know that each and every thing you overcome yourself, each kindness given, each thing truly forgiven, each act of compassion, each time you raise yourself up and start again, each and every single beautiful thing, you are changing the world.

The journey to love, the journey to truth, the journey to remembering the incredible divine beings we are was not meant to be easy. This is the life where all our past lives are coming forward. This is the shake-up. This is the turning point. This is the where and how we help each other and this planet.

I have seen firsthand, by the grace of Heaven, a person who to the outside world seems to be suffering, is lifting the lives of strangers thousand of miles away. What each of us does is magnified a million times fold by just knowing that this is not a possibility it is a divine truth.

As this journey continues, more and more I am so deeply grateful for those who travel this path, for it is true that knowing that even one someone understands can feel like a lifesaver.

Those that read this are my fellow travelers. I am sending a note of love and appreciation for every one of you.

I understand.

I am with you.

Don’t give up.

Feel Me Rise

IMG_0272.JPG

Down here I am in a funk
Down here oh the aches and pains and heartache
Down here the nights are restless
And the work of the soul never ends
Down here I try to figure it all out
Only there is just no figuring
I keep my eyes on the skies
I keep my heart in the heavens
I know there is love all around me
Above and so below
I look and listen
I pray and believe
I know that love surrounds me
I rise and fall
I laugh and I cry
I wish and hope and imagine
I am the hope
I am the dream
I am the Goddess resurrected
I am the sweet surrender
The blood
The sacrifice
The prize
I am the heaven
And I am the hell
I am Woman
Feel me Rise

The Passing

1239559_10201907217034256_2030582870_n

When the time came I could feel it. There was a shift in the energy. The woman from hospice was not aware of it. She was trained to look for physical signs. This was as quiet as a whisper, as subtle as a soft breeze. I felt her going and I said “She is going.” The woman shook her head and said “I just checked her. Everything is the same.” I said again “She is going.” Now she stood and checked my mother’s pulse. She said “There is no pulse.” At that point the room and the woman faded away and there was nothing in this world left except my beautiful mother and me. She had waited for me to arrive. I was only there a few moments when she began making her way home.

I held her hand and I talked. I talked to her for the last time. I talked her right up to Heaven. I was aware of how purposeful and how blessed it all was. I was present, I was focused, I was meant to be her guide. I was honored and so aware, that this is how it all began. I breathed my first breath with my mother and she was now breathing her last breath with me. Full circle.

She was flying with the angels. She was where she belonged. I held her and loved her as she made her journey. I adored her to Heaven. It was just what she deserved. It was quiet and reverent and quick. We were partners, as we always had been, hand in hand, breathing together, the last breath of life. It was a glorious farewell.

On the second anniversary of my mother’s journey to Heaven I did not realize what day it was. I was standing in the kitchen when suddenly in an instant a feeling came over me that was the complete and total essence of my mother. There are no words to describe the power and perfection of this experience. It filled me so that I said out loud ‘Oh my God, Mommy!”

And here is the best part. My mother was very unsure if she believed in life after death. Quite honestly I don’t think she did at all but she tried to, for me. We had many discussions on the subject and she knew that I was absolutely sure of it and she thought that was just lovely for me but …she thought it was something perhaps people made up to make themselves feel better.

I used to kid her and tell her she was going to be so surprised when she found out I was right. I made her promise, I don’t know how many times, that she would give me a sign when she found out the truth., and she has. There have been unmistakable signs from her. This however was beyond a sign, beyond a message.

This was the complete essence of my beautiful mother’s spirit.

My mother found out. There is life after death and she came from Heaven to tell me so.

The Prophecy of Love

218290eedf105732c423da4e7081dd92

Message on Archangel Michael’s Feast Day

I am posting this once again as it is as relevant today as it was when I first received it. At that time I had planned to write about my experience in Abadiania Brazil at the Casa of John of God however it seemed impossible to try to put into words what transpired there. This is all connected to Archangel Michael so in honor of his Feast Day I am sharing this once again.

I found that I was experiencing many parallels during my time at The Casa Don Inacio. The first one was upon my arrival and entry into The Great Hall also called The Casa. The Casa is blue and white and filled with pictures and paintings of Saints and Entities that incorporate into John of God’s body in order to do the healing work on the thousands upon thousands of people who come there. As soon as I walked into the Casa I became completely overwhelmed with emotion. There was a familiar feeling that can not be explained. I cried and cried.

When I stepped outside I immediately recognized this feeling. It was the same reaction I had when entering The Shrine of Saint Michael the Archangel many years ago. The shrine is also a place where healing miracles occur. It is also the place where I first heard a voice that was not my own. As I sat outside the Casa in the meditation garden I knew that these two places were connected and from that moment on I felt the presence of Archangel Michael.

This is a message from Archangel Michael I received on May 2, 2008. May it be of comfort and encouragement to all who receive it at this time.

The crucible has been carried by this family of light. It has been and continues to be carried for humanity. The time at hand is crucial to the spiritual evolution of not only your planet but of all time and space. For what shall now occur is the healing of the very wounds you carry. These memories, these programmings, that which is in the DNA, is being transmuted. This is creating havoc for the lower vibrating energies that are striving to hold on to what once was.

You are strengthening in spiritual character. You are growing in your own particular lives. For through the trials and tribulations, each time you stumble and rise yet again, you are enlivening and connecting to the energy of the Resurrection. This Resurrection energy is that which is transforming the all.

Understand the power of His story. Understand the meaning in your lives of His life, death and Resurrection…for it is your life. This is not meant to be a story of sadness and woe but a model of all that truly is, for within His life upon earth and His magnificent heavenly emanation, all that is, is represented. I speak of the tangible and real manifestation of the darkness that exists. It was shown and is still remembered for this story contains the meaning of all that truly is, heaven and earth made manifest in one being, born to live, born to teach and born to fulfill the prophecy that must be fulfilled. And born to die, as you would perceive it in your world, only to show that there is no death, only the brilliant light of Resurrection that transcends all worlds.

When you ask yourself why your life is such, understand that you have been shown your divine connection to the same story. The wounds are deep, yes, for as He suffered the wounds of and for mankind, so do you. But remember this, the wounds do not outweigh the LOVE. For although you carry the wounds, you above all, carry this LOVE. This infinite, Heavenly love, that which you shared with Him on earth and continue to share with Him in the realms of Heaven, is seen now through your earthly eyes as a disappointment in the actions of humanity. You wish to isolate yourselves from the hurts and the disconnect of those souls who have also come to play their part. This isolation shall come to an end for as he walked among them, touched them and healed them, so shall you.

You must now embrace the story. You must now embrace your role. Do not run from all you have been shown for there is a most Heavenly reason for all that has transpired. For there is no time and as all is repeating or paralleling, you make your own way to not only your own ascension, but the ascension of your world and beyond.

Is this of comfort to you? I think not, for these are just words and you have become accustomed to hearing these scenarios. The truth shall not remain hidden. The time is at hand. Begin to live the prophecy of love. Come out from behind your worldly eyes. Look up! Breathe in the sanctity of your Heavenly mission and see with the eyes of your soul. All this takes is the body and soul willingness to integrate and resonate the completeness of who you are.

Breathe in the spiritual encouragement I am offering. Bask in the light of the Resurrection for it is this light that shines upon your path and it is this light that lights your soul’s remembrance. Walk with assurance. Know you are blessed. Hide no more from all you have been blessed to remember. Remove all self doubt for it is only this that prevents you from the completion of your soul’s journey. The lower energies that conspire to lead you to think negative and powerless thoughts have no power over you, unless you weaken and pay heed to them. Concentrate on your heart light, your love light and the light of the Resurrection of all. For you are this light.
